Hello,

I'm purchasing a notebook, and I have a question about which processor would be best for me. I'll be using it for web and graphic design, as well as music/movie/photo storage and editing. I'll most likely get 2.0 gb of memory with Media Center 2005 and a 100 gb hard drive.

There are several processors to choose from, so here is my question: Is there a notable performance difference between an Intel Core Duo T2250, an Intel Core 2 Duo T5600 and an Intel Core 2 Duo T7400? I'm leaning towards the T5600 but I would like an expert opinion.

Also, as a secondary question, how easy is it to upgrade the memory in a laptop? If I decided to get 1.0 gb for now, would it be easy to change it to 2 gb later?

The one that I am looking at right now is an HP pavillion dv6000t, but I've also looked at the Dell Inspiron E1505.

usually notebook ram is easy to install. the Intel Core 2 Duo T7400 is the best but the core duo series in general is really good for laptops if you are going to have a gig of ram maybe 2gigs it probably won't make a difference witch one you have as far as noticing a difference. but if you have the money i would go with the Intel Core 2 Duo T7400
